Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic Echoes - Expansions
- 12 inch LP
Expansions’ from 1975 was Lonnie Liston Smith’s big crossover album that helped the keyboardist reach a wider audience. It is one of the all time greatest Jazz Funk albums. The title track ‘Expansions’ is one of those really special tracks that still sounds fresh even after 1000’s of plays and is totally engaging from the introduction triangle right to the last bar, pure magic if you are listening or dancing to it. Lonnie’s brother Donald Smith sings the positive lyrics with his distinctive voice. Every track on this album is special from pulsating ‘Voodoo Woman’ to the mystical ‘Shadows’, and the beautiful shuffling ‘Summer Days’. An album to savour forever.
